WTI - 19.30 New Day Rollover


Recommended Posts

I'm a long time FX trader who has recently started to trade WTI. I have noticed that unlike FX pairs, which start their new day at 10pm, and trade 24 hours a day, WTI appears to start a new day at 19.30 BST, and closes between 22.00-23.00 BST. Is the 22.00-23.00 the only close, and do other commodities start their new day at 19.30?


I'm finding this information hard to find on the IG site

What's the difference?

I hear people specialize in things like trading the FTSE 100.  Why would people specialize to such a ridiculous degree?  Aren't the patterns the same for everything?

I have noticed that there tends to be a squeeze, of an average of 30 pips (smallest I seen in backtesting is 9 pips, and the largest is 119 pips) in the last 5 minutes on WTI, before the new day begins. Tonight, the squeeze was only 14 pips, once the spread in taken into account. That is a great trading opportunity.

As for the closed periods, I want to be able to ensure that I'm not left holding a trade into the close, and having to stay up an extra hour to complete it. If I know the closed periods, I and plan accordingly.

    • Here are some general tips that may help you in your crypto trading endeavors: 1. Educate Yourself: Gain a solid understanding of how cryptocurrency markets work, including technical analysis, chart patterns, fundamental analysis, and market indicators. Continuously educate yourself about the latest trends and developments in the cryptocurrency space. 2. Develop a Trading Strategy: Define a clear trading strategy based on your goals, risk tolerance, and time commitment. This strategy should include entry and exit points, stop-loss orders, and profit targets. Stick to your strategy and avoid making impulsive decisions based on emotions. 3. Start with a Demo Account: Many exchanges, including Bitget, offer demo accounts or simulated trading environments. Use these features to practice your trading strategies without risking real money. It allows you to gain experience and assess the effectiveness of your approach. 4. Use Proper Risk Management: Set a risk management plan that includes determining the amount of capital you're willing to risk per trade. Avoid risking too much of your capital on a single trade. Consider using stop-loss orders to limit potential losses. 5. Technical Analysis: Learn how to analyze price charts and identify patterns and trends that can help you make informed trading decisions. Use technical indicators and tools to assist you in your analysis. 6. Stay Informed: Stay updated with news and events that can impact the cryptocurrency markets. Follow reliable sources, join cryptocurrency communities, and pay attention to announcements related to the cryptocurrencies you trade. 7. Start Small and Gradually Increase: It's generally advisable to start with a small amount of capital and gradually increase your position size as you gain experience and confidence in your trading abilities. 8. Control Emotions: Emotions can impact trading decisions. Avoid making impulsive trades based on fear or greed. Stick to your trading plan and remain disciplined. 9. Consider Diversification: Diversify your cryptocurrency portfolio to spread the risk. Investing in a variety of cryptocurrencies can help mitigate potential losses if one particular asset underperforms. 10. Continuous Learning and Adaptation: The cryptocurrency market is highly dynamic, so it's crucial to continuously learn and adapt your trading strategies. Stay open to new ideas and adjust your approach as per market conditions.
    • Analysts have noted a historical correlation between crypto prices and the stock market, particularly in relation to interest rate decisions. Post FOMC decision witness Bitcoin’s price showed little change drop to about 0.17% on the day while other crypto like the Bitget BGB recorded a mild gain. Crypto market analyst TXMC has warned of a potential recession in 2024 due to tight credit conditions, which could influence both stock and Bitcoin prices.
    • If that's the case, then I believe the next step is for the dev team to create an in-app EVM wallet that can process payment natively for PayPal users who wishes to use the stablecoin for transaction on the platform
